Rajesh Khanna 1942-2012

Today, India is crying for Rajesh Khanna. (The Funeral here)

Here is a  song about life from the film Anand. I thought it was a good way for me to pay my humble tribute to this symbol of classic Bollywood.

(The translation in English below is from the site From Politics to Fashion.)


Zindagi kaisi hai paheli haaye
[ What is life , Life is like a puzzle ]

Kabhi to hasaaye kabhi ye rulaaye
[ Which sometimes makes us smile which sometimes makes us cry]

Zindagi kaisi hai paheli haaye
[ What is life , Life is like a puzzle ]

Kabhi to hasaaye kabhi ye rulaaye
[ Which sometimes makes us smile which sometimes makes us cry]

Kabhi dekho man nahi jaage
[ Sometimes heart , soul keeps dreaming , do not wake up ]

Peechhe peechhe sapno ke bhaage
[ Which keeps following the dreams]

Hey hey..

Kabhi dekho man nahi jaage
[ Sometimes heart , soul keeps dreaming , do not wake up ]

Peechhe peechhe sapno ke bhaage
[ Which keeps following the dreams ]

Ek din sapno ka raahi
[ One day the dreamer will ]

Chalaa jaaye sapno se aage kahan
[ Go away beyond the dreams where does the dreamer go ]

Zindagi kaisi hai paheli haaye
[ What is life , Life is like a puzzle ]

Kabhi to hasaaye kabhi ye rulaaye
[ Which sometimes makes us smile which sometimes makes us cry]

Jinhone sajaaye yaha mele
[ The people who organized parties here ]

Sukh dukh sang sang jhele
[ The people who faced, shared happy times as well as sad moments together ]

Jinhone sajaaye yaha mele
[ The people who organized parties here ]

Sukh dukh sang sang jhele
[ The people who faced, shared happy times as well as sad moments together ]

Wahi chunkar khaamoshi
[ Those same people quietly without telling any one ]

Yun chale jaaye akele kahan
[ Where does those people go away alone – talks about death ]

Zindagi kaisi hai paheli haaye
[ What is life , Life is like a puzzle ]

Kabhi to hasaaye kabhi ye rulaaye
[ Which sometimes makes us smile which sometimes makes us cry?]

  1. Superb song! Simply amazing. Anand continues to remain one of my all time favorite movies!

    • Yes, I thought of you when I heard this song. I was sure it was a song you liked. I only saw parts of this film on my computer but I loved the songs and the actors were so moving and refined. I hope I’ll see this film on a real big screen one day!
